Disclaimer: This blog is NOT to encourage anyone to cheat on the Blood Type Diet. I have no intention of backing off my strict compliance at home or my best possible compliance away from home.
However, this plan of eating is powerful enough to give results to people who only go half way.
After my "Cutting pills in half" blog a few days ago about my husband's improving health, I got this note from Elaine. She is an O (like me) and her husband is an A ( like my husband).
"I just wanted to share what happened with my Type A, husband. He won't fully commit to the diet, but does not miss red meat. I have made changes in his diet where he is pretty much compatible with the exception of chicken or turkey. He just got his cholesterol results back and they were all below the normal range. He has had to take medication and has had high cholesterol since they started checking for it. So the diet must be doing something. I cut his Lipitor in half. The doctor thinks this happened because of medication and wanted him to keep taking the stuff. If it never helped before, then I would say the diet had something to do with it."
If you (or members of your family) aren't willing to fully commit to the Blood Type Diet, don't give up! Add in a few more beneficials and pass up a few more avoids. As you start to feel better, you will realize your body likes this diet, and that will help you move from half way to all the way.
After church lunch on Sunday was at Souper Salad. I arrived at the table with a mountain of greens topped with carrots, tomato, broccoli, eggs and taco meat. My son said, "Now that's a Type O salad!" It was encouraging to see the choices the rest of the family made. Type A daughter got lots of salad with a bean and rice taco. Type O son chose Caesar Salad with meatball soup. Type A husband made a huge salad and had 3 bowls of soup. A few months ago he would have gone straight to the potato bar. Everyone is getting closer to eating for their type with no nagging on my part!
